Usefull Info

Important Note and Optional Activities: We, at Pikey Paradise trek are always concerned about the safety of our clients while travelling with us. Just be sure that your trek leader has the authority to cancel or amend any part of itinerary if it is necessary for the safety concerns. We will work and put every effort to keep the above itinerary as it is but as we are travelling in the remote and isolated areas od mountainous region, we can’t guarantee it! Some of the major factors of changing the itinerary are the health of clients and also the extreme weather conditions. Our trek leader will try to do their best as to run according to the plan on the trip but we personally recommend to be prepared for the changes in itinerary if necessary. You will be informed if there will be changes in the itinerary by your trek leader. Your trek leader will assist you with information about your options but please note that any additional activities you undertake are not part of our itinerary and our makes no representation about the safety of the activity. We recommend to use your own judgements when choosing any optional activities in your free time.

Acclimatization:

Trekking itinerary of Pikey Paradise is designed with a high degree of minimization of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). We won’t be going to the higher altitudes too fast as it causes a serious medical condition which may lead to death. The higher the altitude the less oxygen there is in air. On the height above 5000m in mountain ranges, oxygen level drops low at more than 50%. Human body need to adapt at this attitude so we will take acclimatization and rest days on some of the points of our trek. We recommend to the clients who are suffering from heart and lung disease to consult with their doctor before being a part of the journey. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Our itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS but it is important to remember, some people can be more susceptible than others.

Trek leader and Staff Arrangements:

We, at Pikey Paradise firmly believe that if you want to get the most of the output from your staffs, you must treat them well. We also believe that a happy staff is a hard-working staff. We extremely believe in these things and also try our best to maintain a good relationship with our staffs.

Most of the emphasis are given to the local leaders and local guides as we believe working with the staffs of local communities is ore fruitful. We provide training for all our staff and all our trek leaders are trained in the following as a minimum;

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Trekking Guide Training
  • Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet
  • English Language
  • Conservation & Biodiversity
  • Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

At, Pikey Peak, we guarantee our clients that they are working and coping with the best professionals of the country who are friendlier and also much experienced on their respective field. All of our guides are fluent in speaking English and if you want, we are ready to provide you guides who are good at speaking other languages such as French, Spanish, Japanese, German and Italian. We only select professionals who are experienced, have leadership skills, are friendly in nature and also have a good personal ability. All these years, we have learnt that one of the major needed things in the trip is the leadership quality that a guide should have so that the trip will be safe, enjoyable and successful.

You will also be glad to know that most of our guides are actually from the mountainous region of our country and have spent half of their whole life in the most isolated and remote areas of our country. Mountainous region is the home for them and walking through these challenging paths is in their blood. They’re not ‘familiar’ with local communities, they’re a part of them. They don’t ‘know’ local culture, they practice it. They truly love their home and relish getting the opportunity to show travelers why.

Porter Care

One of the most underrated professionals of our country are the porters who are a major part in the trekking and expedition journeys at the Himalayas. No doubt, the entire trekking and expedition industry in Nepal is built on the back of these hard-working porters. We must be blessed with the effort of the porters as their tireless efforts of carrying supplies, equipment and baggage makes the journey to the Himalayan region successful. So, its kind of unfortunate that they have endured a history of exploitation and abuse at the hands of the industry. In an effort to combat this, we are firmly committed to porter rights.

We assure all our porters are well treated, well paid and we also provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. And for the porter’s sake we require that all trekkers keep their bag weight under 15kgs/33 pounds.

We totally support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters.

Environmental Concerns:

Most of the areas of the Himalayan region is stunningly beautiful but at the same hand it’s to risky as well. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as we do and so the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. We employ a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. We enforce a number of do’s and don’ts, and staff can advise how to minimize your impact.

Trekking to the base camp of the mountain of our country is not an easy task and one should be in a good health and physical condition. Most of the days have four to five hours of walking and some of the days are up to seven hours as well. Although less but these walks are very much tiring and difficult. It’s a good idea to prepare yourself in the lead-up to your trip with some regular exercise, the best form of which is long walks in hilly areas. Technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination.

We recommend to let us know if you have any pre-existing medical conditions as it might be difficult above 5000m if you get sick. Also, before coming to Nepal it’s important to consult your doctor regarding vaccinations and any other medical concerns that the trip may raise. Medical and evacuation expenses are your responsibility

A typical day on the trail:

You will be waked up early in the morning with a bucket of hot water to wash in. You will then have your breakfast and then pack your bag to head for the trek. We will trek through forests, hills, mountains and local villages all about 3hours. We will then stop for an hour at a particularly pleasant spot and have our lunch. We will then again start our trek and trek about another 3hours to reach the destination where we will stay for overnight. Then you can have tea or coffee and some light snacks, before exploring the area with trek leader or just relaxing until dinner is served in a warm dining hall.

Evenings are quite interesting and fun as we will be chatting and doing entertainment stuffs with our fellow trek mates. Finally, it’s off to bed for a well-deserved night’s rest before you start it all again.

Pre-Trip Meeting:

Our trek journey starts with a pre-trip meeting at Kathmandu at our office. We will be usually doing the pree-trip meeting on the second day of our trekking journey and then you will be introduced to your fellow trek mates. You will also be introduced with your trek leader and then you can ask the important questions to your trek leaders in the pre-trip meeting.

The Trekking Group:

For the Everest Base Camp trek, there will be one leader, one assistant leader and one Sherpa porter for each group of two trekkers. This arrangement ensures that should any one of them fall ill, the trip can still go on as planned. We can run the trek for groups of any size, but generally have a maximum of ten people, as we’ve found this to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you’d like to make a group booking for more than ten people it can easily be arranged.

Accommodations:

The cost of the accommodations in this trek is included in the trip cost and we have chosen accommodation options based on the following criteria; standard of hygiene, standard of service, location, food standards and cost. All accommodation is based on twin share. We will provide you single supplement if there is different sex. For the solo trip and on request single supplement will be charge US$300.

Toilet Facilities – On trek, toilet facilities are available at Tea Houses but some places are beyond your expectation and you should be satisfied with a local toilet.

Meals during Trek:

All Meals on full board basis will be provided during the cost spent on trek. Three meals (Nepali, Sherpa, Tibetan, Bhutanese, Continental, Italian and Indian cuisine) a day will be provided from the teahouse/lodge menus. Each day dinner and breakfast are used to take in the same lodge you spend the night. Lunch will also be provided by our company and at the same cost.
